Dog Art – Dussia the Smiling Dog

For those readers who liked Dussia, here she is again. This time in colored paper and colored pencils.

Smiling Dog Art

Elena claims she smiles sometimes! Try and see whether you feel the same way by looking at the photograph.

The major point when using colored paper in your artwork is to remember that the color of the paper sets the mood for the entire drawing. It’s almost as if the essence of your painting or drawing is set even before you lay pencil to paper.

In the picture above, Elena has neatly harmonized the color of the paper with that of the drawing itself, thereby giving a nice easy impression.

This Scottish Terrier from Northeastern Europe has quite a reputation. Armed with several prizes and honorary titles, he could be said to be one of the foremost dogs in the republic!

By now you are familiar with the art work of Elena Adams whom we have featured for well over a month now. The owner of Britas – Joana had this box made through Elena who used a variety of techniques to complete it.

The details is marvelous and very realistic. A work of art that is a fitting tribute to Britas the Scottish Terrier from Lithuania.

Introducing Dussia – The Scottish Terrier


July 12, 2010

Elena’s love affair with her Scottish Terriers continues as she introduces to us Dussia, Patrick’s Friend.

This sketch is done with a pencil. It occurs to me, that scottish terriers lend themselves very well to pencil sketches. Notice how the lines mesh with each other to create the picture with minimal shading.

Patrick himself must have taken quite a while longer to draw, with his black hair requiring much more time and effort than Dussia’s. So for beginners – If you want to draw a dog, start with a white one!

Dog Art: The Five year old Scottish Terrier

This week Elenor has chosen to show us the painting of her 12.5 year old Scottish Terrier. This painting was done 7 years ago, and that means that Patrick (That’s his name) must have been around 5 at the time.

Dog Art

This is a gouache painting which means that it has been painted by applying opaque watercolor to paper. The effect is that the painting reflects light instead of being semi-translucent the way normal watercolors are.

This week, we’re showcasing another dog box. This one is bigger than the Dog box we showed last week.

Box inside

Elena has certainly done a great job of painting these boxes, and giving us these pictures. The fact that springs out most from her painting is her love of dogs, and her ability to paint them in settings that have a distinctly human touch. Like the mustaches.

Dog Art: Carol Gillian's Golden Retriever Painting


July 12, 2010
Sandor Fagyal

Initially bred as a gun dog, Golden Retrievers were bred to have soft mouths so as to bring back their prey undamaged. A love of water, and a gentle nature characterize their personalities.

Having studied art in Brighton, Carol Gillian loves to use oil paintings for her animal portraits. Often, she will stop dog walkers to get a photograph of their pets to use in her pictures.

In 2006, she won the DeMontfort New Artist competition. She likes to paint her subjects in such way that the viewer is engaged with the animal, and feels a response.

Dog Art: Alberto Giacometti and his " Dog "


July 12, 2010

Alberto Giacometti- the famous surrealist sculptor- made a sculpture of a Saluki dog in 1951. It was simply entitled: “Dog”. Yet the model itself is not as simple as one would believe. Many dog researchers believe, that the Saluki – an Egyptian hunting dog – is recognized as the oldest breed of dog in the world. In 1965, Giacometti recalled the genesis of the dog sculpture: ” One day I was walking along the Rue de Vanves, in the rain, close to the walls of the buildings, feeling a little sad perhaps, and I felt like a dog just then. So I made that sculpture. The sad muzzle has a likeness to the Saluki.”

Made of bronze and cast in 1957, it measures 18 x 39 x 6 1/8″ (45.7 x 99 x 15.5 cm). It can be seen at the Museum of Modern Art in the US.

And the model? What does a Saluki look like? Its emaciated look, was ideal for Giacometti’s sculpture!
